Best Complex Power Settings Using Ant Lion Optimizer for Optimal Power Flow Problem

--J Radha, S Subramanian, S Ganesan and M Abirami

The paper intends to solve an electric power dispatch problem, which is a multiple non-commensurable objective problem, minimizing operating cost, adhering to pollution norms, and ensuring low transmission loss and no violations on voltage levels subject to various constraints considering the nonlinear characteristics of generators. Improved control settings such as generator powers, bus voltage magnitudes, transformer taps and shunt capacitor settings for individual minimization of objectives are obtained by a new algorithm called Ant Lion Optimizer (ALO). The best solution records of IEEE-30 bus and New England power systems are updated in this work. To further demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of the ALO-based Optimal Power Flow (OPF), it has been compared with other state-of-the-art evolutionary algorithms on this domain. Comprehensive simulation results with various case studies show a great potential for application of ALO in OPF problems.

Optimal Placement of Phasor Measurement Units for Madhya Pradesh Power Grid

--Ajit Kumar and S Bhongade

The tremendous demand for electricity makes the entire power grid system very complex to monitor. There is an essential requirement to continuously monitor the power grid for making it smarter and reliable. Traditional measurement system, i.e., Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system is getting replaced by Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs), which enable the online monitoring of the power system more effectively. Improvement in power system control and protection is achieved by utilizing real-time synchronized phasor measurements. PMU with the help of GPS can measure the phasor values of voltages at the bus where it is placed and the current through the branches connected to that bus. The current measurement enables us to estimate the voltages at the neighboring buses. Because of this, placing PMUs at all buses for the complete monitoring of the power system is redundant. Finding the optimal locations of PMUs to make the power system completely observable is an area of research interest. This paper proposes the optimal locations of PMUs for the power grid of Madhya Pradesh state, India, using Integer Linear Programming (ILP). PMU placement problem has been formulated and optimization has been carried out.

Performance Evaluation of Ad Hoc Routing Protocols for Various Battery Models in MANET Using QualNet 6.1

-- Rohit Sangwan, Manoj Duhan and Sachin Dahiya

Energy conservation is a critical issue in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) as the nodes are powered by batteries which have limited energy reservoir. The lifetime of nodes in MANETs depends naturally on the rate at which energy is consumed; however, it also depends on the discharging behavior of battery. Continuous drawing of a high current can result in an excessive drop of residual capacity. However, during the intervals with no or very small currents, the batteries do recover to a certain extent. The existing protocols do not consider this fact and as a result waste a huge amount of energy if we do not carefully schedule and budget their discharging behavior. However, one needs a battery model to describe the effects of the discharging pattern of battery on different parameters like PDR, throughput, jitter, end-to-end delay and residual battery capacity of nodes. Over the years, many different types of battery models have been developed for different application areas. In this paper, the behavior of various proactive, reactive and hybrid ad hoc routing protocols for different battery models, i.e., Duracell AA(MX-1500), Duracell AAA(MX-2400), Duracell C-MN(MN-1400), Duracell AAA(MN-2400), Panasonic AA and Panasonic AAA, using QualNet 6.1 as network simulation tool is analyzed.

Chaotic Characterization and Forecasting of Electric Load Demand Time Series

--Sanju Saini and J S Saini

In this paper, electrical load demand of a region, although appears to be random, yet the hidden determinism in an electrical load demand time series, is investigated by chaotic characterization of the series. Although chaotic systems have uncertain long-time behavior, yet their behavior is short-time predictable. Hence, for the case study, an artificial neural network trained by using back-propagation algorithm has been successfully used for short-term forecasting of electrical load demand of a specific region.

Optimization of Pool Contracts Using Intelligent Techniques and Calculation of Transmission Prices for Bilateral Contracts

--S K Gupta and H D Sharma

The paper analyzes the approaches for transmission cost allocation and centralized pool-based electricity price calculation. It is required to identify the contribution of individual generators and loads to the line flows. A study on IEEE 26 bus system has been presented in this research work for calculating transmission prices for bilateral contracts between GENCOs and DISCOs at different buses. Intelligent techniques have been applied to minimize pool prices and optimize pool generation by minimizing transmission losses. The intelligent techniques used are Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and compared with conventional ELD method. MW-mile method is used to calculate the transmission pricing. The results of these techniques are compared, which show better performance of ELD + GA technique over ELD + PSO and ELD techniques.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs): The Changing Face of Banking in India

Bank Management
Information and communication technology has changed the way in which banks provide services to its customers. These days the customers are able to perform their routine banking transactions without even entering the bank premises. ATM is one such development in recent years, which provides remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the development of this self-service banking in India based on the secondary data.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing a very important role in the progress and advancement in almost all walks of life. The deregulated environment has provided an opportunity to restructure the means and methods of delivery of services in many areas, including the banking sector. The ICT has been a focused issue in the past two decades in Indian banking. In fact, ICTs are enabling the banks to change the way in which they are functioning. Improved customer service has become very important for the very survival and growth of banking sector in the reforms era. The technological advancements, deregulations, and intense competition due to the entry of private sector and foreign banks have altered the face of banking from one of mere intermediation to one of provider of quick, efficient and customer-friendly services. With the introduction and adoption of ICT in the banking sector, the customers are fast moving away from the traditional branch banking system to the convenient and comfort of virtual banking. The most important virtual banking services are phone banking, mobile banking, Internet banking and ATM banking. These electronic channels have enhanced the delivery of banking services accurately and efficiently to the customers. The ATMs are an important part of a bank’s alternative channel to reach the customers, to showcase products and services and to create brand awareness. This is reflected in the increase in the number of ATMs all over the world. ATM is one of the most widely used remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the growth of ATMs of different bank groups in India.
International Scenario

If ATMs are largely available over geographically dispersed areas, the benefit from using an ATM will increase as customers will be able to access their bank accounts from any geographic location. This would imply that the value of an ATM network increases with the number of available ATM locations, and the value of a bank network to a customer will be determined in part by the final network size of the banking system. The statistical information on the growth of branches and ATM network in select countries.

Indian Scenario

The financial services industry in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth, diversification and specialization since the initiation of financial sector reforms in 1991. Greater customer orientation is the only way to retain customer loyalty and withstand competition in the liberalized world. In a market-driven strategy of development, customer preference is of paramount importance in any economy. Gone are the days when customers used to come to the doorsteps of banks. Now the banks are required to chase the customers; only those banks which are customercentric and extremely focused on the needs of their clients can succeed in their business today.
